Sir John Soane s Museum  London

The Soane House, a four-storey cabinet of curiosities assembled by the great English architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837), is one of London's secret treasures.

Sir John Soane's London house is undoubtedly one of the most unusual works ever produced by an architect. Soane's highly individual interpretations of classical language, combined with his singular spatial solutions, show that he was an artist well ahead of his time, almost a pioneer of the Modern movement. His great and unusual gift for creating monumental scale in a confined space makes his house a rare visual pleasure. An Act of Parliament in 1833 secured Soane's house for the nation and for posterity. Soane gave instructions that the house should be preserved in all its detail as he left it on his death in 1837, at the advanced age of 84. This means that we can still experience the unusual visual world of this remarkable architect today. Soane altered and added to his house over a period of 40 years. His deep conviction that man can be educated and bettered by studying examples of work in the visual arts of many periods made him an insatiable collector and his house is an Aladdin's cave of objects, paintings and curios that make it a source of great fascination and enjoyment. This publication in the Opus series is a rare but successful record showing the principal spaces in their overall effect and in detail -- a most difficult task considering the spatial complexities and small dimensions of some of the rooms. Richard Bryant demonstrates his enormous skill as a photographer by capturing Soane's idiosyncratic and rich conceptions in his images, which are a masterpiece of architectural documentation. The text describes the history of the building and its complicated development, together with a short biography of its creator.

"A perpetual collision of eccentricities, a tilt and tournament of absurdities, the prejudices and caprices of mankind let loose" was how Hazlitt described William Hogarth's paintings, and they still delight, interest and amuse as much today as two hundred years ago. The Rake's Progress and An Election are Hogarth's two most famous series of paintings. Both series are in Sir John Soane's museum in London, and in this book the Librarian of the Museum, Christina Scull, tells the story of the paintings and discusses their narrative and contents.

This book of essays is published to coincide with an exhibition of the same title at Sir John Soane's Museum, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London (October 23, 2015 March 26, 2016) commemorating the 200th anniversary of Soane's beloved wife Eliza's death on November 22, 1815. Its relevance to Soane studies, is, however, much broader, with essays shedding new light on the architecture of legacy in Sir John Soane's Museum; Soane's preoccupation with memorialization as revealed in the design process for the Soane family tomb; the legacy of his drawings collection; and Soane's attempt shortly before his death to sustain future interest in his collections by creating a series of time capsules. The essays, written by the curatorial team at Sir John Soane's Museum, are accompanied by 39 illustrations in full color, some of them published for the first time."

Sir John Soane's Greatest Treasure describes one of the most important antiquities ever found in Egypt - the beautiful calcite sarcophagus of the pharaoh Seti I. Discovered in 1817 in the tomb of Seti I in the Valley of the Kings by the flamboyant explorer Giovanni Belzoni, the sarcophagus now resides in John Soane's Museum in London's Lincoln's Inn Fields. Leading Egyptologist John H. Taylor outlines the life of Seti I, the background to the creation of the sarcophagus, the excitement surrounding its discovery and the fascinating story of its journey to London and its acquisition by John Soane. At the heart of the book is a fully illustrated interpretation of the complex imagery and hieroglyphic inscriptions which cover the delicately carved surfaces of the sarcophagus. The book also includes an essay by Helen Dorey on the celebrations held at the Museum to welcome the arrival of the sarcophagus of Seti I in 1825. John Soane's Greatest Treasure is published to mark the 200th anniversary of the discovery of the sarcophagus in 1817, and to accompany a major exhibition at John Soane's Museum, opening in October 2017.
